THE STORY:

Please help me reach my fundraising goal in this year's Race to End Racism.

I am excited to support this local organization that is grooming our teenagers to become civic leaders and change makers! I participated on the recruitment committee that selected the promising students of Class 9, and very recently joined their board of directors. Don't be surprised to hear from me if your child is entering their sophomore or junior year of high school...I highly recommend this program!

 

Teaching teens to be activists, community organizers and "troublemakers of the best kind."

 

Cultural Leadership exists to create a more just and equitable community by educating high school students in the St. Louis region to recognize and resolve issues of privilege and injustice to become social justice activists.

Our students develop leadership skills, build relationships and facilitate dialogues to become change agents and what we affectionately call "troublemakers of the best kind," to make St. Louis and the greater community more socially just and inclusive.

 

Why Cultural Leadership?

Although progress has been made on the inequalities in our society related to racism and discrimination, there continues to be disparities in education, healthcare, economic development and the criminal justice system.  Historic housing and social patterns in St. Louis have created few opportunities for students of different races to interact.  Where opportunities do exist, self-segregation often occurs.

According to a report entitled Racial Equality in the St. Louis Region: A Call To Action, St. Louis is one of the most racially segregated, most racially polarized metropolitian areas in the country with too many people suffering the inherent consequences.

Clearly, there is a need for enlightened future leaders who recognize and understand these disparities and inquities and who can take action agains social injustice to benefit all aspects of our society.

 

This is why Cultural Leadership is so important!

Join our cause, run with us in a race to end racism!
